Anyone know if a Topfin 20 is the same size as a 10? The 20 has an adjustable flow rate, so if it will fit on the back I think I'll go pick one up when I get paid. Also, her Algae eater is gonna get up to 6in long... that's way too big D;

What's the return policy for fish? lol

Her colors have really come out since I got her (That's a good thing right?)

If I switched sides with all the decorations, will that stress her out? I was gonna move the plants in front of the filter to help break up that evil current, it really tires her out :C She can't swim in the middle at all! D:

No bettas tend to enjoy it when you move decor makes them not so bored :)
Yes it is good her colours came out she was most likely stressed and was pale as she was not feeling good when she feels better she gets her color back just like humans :(

Just take out the filter before she gets sucked in!
Go find the thread on baffling a filter, baffle your filter then you can stick it back in until, then just keep the litre out! So sorry this happened she will heal however :(

baffled the filter, wow it works wonders! She's SO happy now! She actually has control on where she swims :D She also seemed to fan out her fins a lot o.o She's a pretty little thing :3

tested my sister's water just now. Nitrates at about 15 or so, Nitrites at 0, Ph 7.7, Kh 80, Gh around 80.

Seems alright :D

Unfortunately I don't have an ammonia tester =/ but the guy at Petsmart said you can sort of tell where it's at based off the Nitrate/trite readings. That SafeStart works wonders!
